, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that

borger, and joining us from new york, cnn political contributor and republican strategist, ed rollins and john avalon, also a cnn contributor, as well as senior political columnist for the daily beast. let's get straight to this tax fight. president obama went out to the fairfield, virginia, doing a little town hall in a backyard. and he was making his case that the you should keep tax cuts for those families making $250,000 anbew, and those making more than that should pay more. number one, the president says that's only fair. number two, he says, we can't afford it because red ink. >> but we can't give away $700 billion to folks who don't need it a think somehow that we're going to balance our budget. it's not gog to hapn. >> one intere, ing int, freddy, to the democrat the first, in the audience, as the president did, that was the local congressman jerry conley. if you go to jerry conley's website, democrat,ni rrengior re-election, a little nervous. probably okay, but probably a little nervous. on his website, he's also a handful of democrats who support extending the bush taxes c

put it, is a very good idea. tell us a little more about -- how you make the program work. you talk to the women's groups and they make recommendations as to what it should be done? >> guess, -- yes, and least once a year, 300 or 400 cases are chosen at random and we spend a few days, actually, going over these cases. particularly unfounded or exceptionally clear cases and they will find some cases where they felt there were some investigative leads that were not followed up on and so forth. the we go back and complete the investigation. there are sometimes active cases that are ongoing where we either need their assistance or they have questions for us. i think is a good check and balance. i think is the way to go. no matter how good your system may be internally, if you do not have someone from the outside that can review and critique what is your doing and always working to make it better, then it will be subject to some doubt as to whether or not you are thoroughly investigating these crimes. our job is to take the report. it does not matter what you may feel about the victim. t

[laughing] >> they are trying to say we are trying to take over that party or that campaign. they don't get it. we are not trying to take back our country. we are, our country. >> she spoke for 18 minutes and received multiple standing ovation . she won the gop nomination in delaware. she is called the "it" girl. there is so much. she won an upset victory and some people say the deck and cards are stacked against her for the upcoming election. but she is getting so much name recognition people are getting to know her now that she is on the national stage. >> she is perfect tea party candidate. she is anti-establishment. she was voted in by the people and that's what she stands fo
to this established, old-time republican operatives. it's interesting to sort of see, you know, are they using the anger and frustration of so many of these people for their own political gain for the establishment. >> joe, you're nodding. yeah, this is for me, a work in progress because i've sort of been looking into the financial funding. the spokesperson for opensecrets.org is on the record saying their money comes from things like health care professional, believe it or not, which is fascinating. from, you know, financial concerns, retirees, and one of the big questions, of course, is how much charles and david cook, the big conservative funders, are actually putting into that. it's not clear to me, i mean, i don't know that. so it's sort of dribs and drabs. >> first of all, i think we have our new york guest joining us, john avalon and erick erickson joining us. hi, guys. i hope you can see this, but let's take a look at some of the different groups that have tried to influence the tea party. i think we have a graphic of that. there's the tea party express. tea party patriots, freedomwork
your strengths. work and wages. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? from fighting the establishment to become it. the tea party has its fifth senatorial candidate who immediately steers away from the tea party. >> the reason we're here today is because of the alaskan voter. the volunteer network that was such an important part of our campaign and all the various endorse mts we got. >> fired up? ready to go? no? can you fake it? the afl-cio's urgent effort to reignite voter enthusiasm. our guest, union president richard triumphka. allan simpson again. first the lesser people. then the head of the older women's league should get a real job. now criticizing vietnam vets because they have been given too many benefits. benefits for which simpson voted as senator. >>> unmitigated gall. the biggest lie. the worst foreign policy decision in american history. and the bushies still want an ftd thank you bouquet for it. >> he couldn't be direct about the surge.
-- >> stephanie, great to have you with us tonight. >>> tonight our text survey question, i asked you, do you think that the tea party shares your values? 8% said of you said yes. 92% of you said, no. have a great weekend. that's "the ed show." chris matthews and "hardball" is next. see you monday. >>> palin gives iowa a try. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews, down in washington, leading off tonight, the senator from delaware. that's right. the prominence of christine odon thel week, tells you how much the republican party has changed. at least for now. the grand ole party is history. this week's primary voting especially in delaware has changed the calculus. less for this november than for november 2012. if you're a classic lineup, well, if you're a classic lineup the endorsement's big money establishment republican like mitt romney, you've had a very bad week. who had a good week? the candidate who wasn't in today's obama-bashing viewers values summit here in washington, sarah palin. this is her parent now. the only question is what she wants to do herself, run or
for watching us tonight. the tea party vs. the republican establishment. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo once again. last night the tea party flexed its muscles as christine o'donnell in delaware and karl paladino in new york came from far behind to win their respective races. immediately after those victories, left-wing media began viciously attacking both people, pulling up old tape of ms. o'donnell talking about sex and defining mr. paladino as a nut. liberal press put forth that neither could win in the general election. that is what is passing for reporting these days. there is no question that some tea party supported candidates are causing angst against some establishment republicans. karl rove, for example, is not a big fan of ms. o'donnell's. >> there is just a lot of nutty things that she has been saying that doesn't add up to. >> sean: sounds like you don't support her. >> i'm for the republican, but i have got to tell you, we were looking at 8 to 9 seats in the senate. we're now looking at 7 to in my opinion. this is not a race we are able to win. >> he
the world. [ siren ] >> that is all the time we have left tonight. thank you for being with us. we will see you back here on monday night. have a great night. >>> i'm julie banderas. >> gregg: i'm gregg jarrett. toppling the news this hour, just days after ending official combat operations in iraq, american forces repelling a broad daylight attack. expectation of american forces and can we turn the page and combat in iraq? >> chairman of dnc speaking out democrats trying to distance themselves against speaker pelosi. he says it jeopardizes the entire party. >> gregg: prosecutors of 17 states putting pressure on craigslist to drop the erotic services section and free speech advocates is fighting back. >> julie: midterm elections are drawing near and many polls show democrats stumbling to the finish line. when it comes to politics, two months can be a very long time. so both democrats and republicans are courting public opinion hard in the leadup to november. steve is live in washington with more. >> reporter: couple of polls not looking too great for democrats. let's take a look at
the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
's primary results. zero be on your screen. joining us this morning from our news desk is steve peoples from "roll call." let us begin with the headline from the delaware newspaper, anti-establishment insurgency rocks of delaware. o'donnell in shocker. tea party-backed candidates funds. how would she be able to do it? guest: not surprised here. the tea party express came into town against the wishes of some people in washington. spent a lot of money. in a closed republican primary was able to make a difference and up said cassell. honestly hard to see this as anything but a nightmare scenario for the gop, at least in this delaware race. you heard karl rove right off the race and both people on both sides are doing the same thing. host: people did not think she could win this primary, either. guest: two different races. winning a closed republican primary which -- i looked at the numbers, about 60,000 people voted, about one-tenth of all registered voters in delaware. about one third of registered republicans. a very small sample. you get enough of your friends and the excited base out, you c
the republican cannibalism i was ahead in the polls. and, you know, if we can put this behind us and do some damage repair and, you know, then we can turn the two-point lead to a 10-point lead. >> some republicans fear o'donnell will cost them the chance to win the seat joe biden held for 0 years as well -- 30 years as well as deny them a critical seat needed to win in the majority. >> it's clear that the tea party movement has the upper hand in the republican primary electorate. that is not the general election. >> meanwhile, in new jersey, establishment favorite won the g.o.p. nomination to face democratic congressman paul hodes in november. the win was so close against conservative glamante, it was not decided until this afternoon. >> despite all the tension between tea party conservatives and establishment republicans and whether it's a good thing or bad thing that tea party candidates keep winning there are two things that are benchmarks undeniable. since the primaries began more than 4 million republican ballots have been cast over democrats. and in delaware, where christine o'donnell
, not a run. i'm not getting on the train to da if there's running. >> there will be no running from us. we got a golf cart. i got, like, those tony soprano sweats, velour and we'll be smoking. we're in new york, we have msnbc and "time" magazine analyst laura halprin. chris jansing and in washington, d.c., nbc political analyst pat buchanan. i don't know if pat is lathered up by what happened last night. pat, we'll get to you in a minute. i was awakened though in the middle of the night by a three-alarm -- not tweet, a three-alarm column by mark halprin, framing last night in opinion pox lip tick terms for the republican party. >> so apocalyptic. republicans were taking a senate seat, there was a building block to get back to the senate majority. it's gone barring some truly unforeseeable development. absolute binary switch. republicans now almost impossible to come up with a way they get the ten-seat majority. in the longer term it shows the republican party has a huge problem. they've benefit friday the tea party movement so far. they'll benefit in november but maybe having a huge, huge
